Please note: Our Lady of the Lake Children's Health will continue to monitor the efficacy and safety profile of the COVID-19 vaccine in children, just as we monitor all vaccines in children.

Bonus episode: The vaccine is here! Many parents are now asking, what does the vaccine mean for our teens and youth? Returning to ParentingU are two doctors—both pediatricians and both parents—Dr. Christopher Funes and Dr. Michael Bolton. Why do teens even need the vaccine? Is it safe? Is this the same shot adults are getting? What do parents need to know for their own family when discussing the vaccine? These questions and more are answered on the show.
